Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD) received a lot of criticism for her speech in the New Year’s Eve fireworks. The CDU defense politician Serap Güler suggested Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) to dismiss Lambrecht. She wrote on Twitter with reference to the Ukraine war: “The speech about the war with New Year’s Eve firecrackers in the background only adds to the icing on the cake of her series of embarrassments. Therefore: Every further minute in which the Federal Chancellor still holds on to this minister and with it further damaged our country’s reputation, is his fault.”

It is no longer about the external impact of a minister, but about Germany’s perception in Europe and the world. “Who should take us so seriously anymore?” Güler wrote on Monday morning. “This video speaks for itself. What an embarrassment, what a mistake,” wrote the member of the Bundestag Florian Hahn (CSU).

Christine Lambrecht speaks of the war – and “many great encounters”

Lambrecht had shared a video on Sunday via an Instagram account marked as private, in which she took stock of the year 2022. Their sentences were overlaid by the whistling of New Year’s Eve rockets and exploding firecrackers. Lambrecht said the year 2022 presented us with incredible challenges. “A war is raging in the middle of Europe. And that meant a lot of special impressions for me that I was able to gain, many, many encounters with interesting and great people. I say a heartfelt thank you for that.” She also thanked the emergency services working over the New Year.
